Dramatic shortage of nurses generates surprisingly high interest in new website dedicated to helping health care organizations recruit qualified nurses. Unlike other websites in the nursing staffing industry, this website is completely free for both nursing job seekers and nursing employers.

Nursing Job Finder launches with unique take on medical staffing.

On February 1 the Nursing Job Finder (NJF) located at, a new website and resource for the nursing and health care industry, officially launched its unique take on recruiting for the nursing industry.

And this couldn't come at a more critical time: according to the latest projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 1,000,000 new and replacement nurses will be needed by 2012, making registered nursing the top occupation in terms of job growth through the year 2012.

Unfortunately, that demand isn't being met by supply of available nurses:

  • 44 states are expected to have nursing shortages by year 2020.
  • There 100,000 vacant nursing position in long-term care facilities.
  • According to Health Affairs, over 80% of doctors and surveyed claimed to have nursing shortages where they worked.

Offering extensive but simple to use tools and features for both the job seeker and employer free of charge, NJF is designed to fill the growing demand for nursing and medical professional around the globe.

“Our goal is simple, to allow job seekers and employers to find each other quickly, efficiently and without breaking the bank or wasting time” says Rich Phillips, VP, Customer Relations.

The Nursing Job Finder is a unique initiative because it was designed to maximize the employers’ efforts and minimize their costs of recruiting qualified candidates with a simple to use interface backed by smart recruiting technology.

Mr. Phillips describes just some of the features of NJF that are offered to both employers and job seekers:

“We wanted to make it easy for employers and recruiters to register and post a job so we created the One Step registration process. One Step enables the job poster to get started and get their first job listed in less than 2 minutes. Something that also separates us from other job boards is our multipost feature. This smart technology pushes jobs posted on NJF to third party job aggregator sites for maximum exposure. Finally, what could be better than unlimited free job postings and resume sourcing allowing employers to maximize their recruiting efforts at NO COST?

For the Job seeker we have created the same conveniences and simple to use tools. The One Step resume upload and one step resume builder allows job seekers to apply to jobs instantly by either creating a resume on the NJF site or simply uploading their current resume. Job seekers have the option to perform a quick search or an advanced search which lets them drill down into specific geographical areas and types of jobs.”

The Nursing Job Finder is a resource for the Nursing industry that makes it incredibly easy for both the job seeker and employer to find what they need - from resume building, to job posting, to resume sourcing. “The NJF team has made it easy for the Nursing community because that’s the way we feel it should be”, says Mr. Phillips.
